News For Friday 08/08/14


News for Friday 080814

By Dave Graichen

 

24 year old Bubbie Waters of Lecompte has been arrested and faces multiple charged in connection with the theft of several ATV’s and side by side utility vehicles. Detectives with the RPSO say the vehicles were stolen in the dead of the night and the victims didn’t realize the vehicles were gone until the next day or in some cases several days later. Detectives also recovered a stolen ATV from Waters' house.

 

A Pineville man, Keith Wayne Ranburger,  is being accused of scouting stuff that people had listed for sale across the state, but then, according to the RPSO, would return later and steal the items. The investigation involved thefts in 5 parishes..

 

Bobby Jindal is scheduled to be in Iowa today and tomorrow, his third visit to the important presidential primary state in recent months. Early polls show muted interest in Jindal’s aspirations, a recent CNN poll even put him outside the top 7 candidates. Jindal says he will not make any calls on a presidential run until after the November elections have concluded.

 

Forecasters with NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center have updated their hurricane season forecast and now say there is an increased chance it will be below-normal. Lead seasonal forecaster Gerry Bell says conditions across the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea are incredibly unfavorable for hurricane development. He says the outlook issued today calls for a 70% chance of a below normal season.

 

The Louisiana Association of Business and Industry says the state will lose jobs and energy prices will rise if the EPA’s proposed ozone standards are enacted. The EPA is considering new regulations that will require the state to lower ozone pollution. LABI President Stephen Waguespack says a National Association of Manufacturers report indicates the regulations would hurt the state’s booming economy.  The EPA will finalize the new ozone regulations in December. The federal agency says history proves you can reduce pollution and grow the economy at the same time.

 

Louisiana State Police is now offering the sale of crash photographs online through their website. The purpose of the new system is to increase accessibility to crash photos and to streamline the purchasing process. However, Fatality photographs will not be available online.

 

It was a close call for the main house of the historic Myrtles Plantation Wednesday night when a fire broke out in the gift shop. It took the St. Francisville Fire Department, along with several other agencies from around the area, a couple of hours to get control of the blaze. The main house was not damaged. And that fire is currently being investigated by the State Fire Marshal’s Office.

 

State Police say the man who drove through a house in Schriever and caused the death of a baby on June 27, was extremely drunk at the time according to blood-alcohol tests that came back this week. Trooper Evan Harrell says during the incident, 20-year-old Tony Milligan of Houma rear-ended another car then fled the scene. Milligan remains in jail on a vehicular homicide charge among many others.

 

Well it’s a start.. A 57-million dollar construction project is set to begin on US 90 in Lafayette Parish as crews will expand that highway to interstate standards from Ambassador Caffery to Albertsons Parkway. State department of transportation spokesperson Deidra Druilhet (Drool yet) says this is also a part of a larger plan to extend I-49 South. She says it should take about 3 years to complete the one-point-six mile stretch of roadway.

 

The LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans has been awarded a $5.6 million grant from the National Cancer Institute to build a regional cancer clinical trials network. This program creates a network of physicians, nurses, and researchers to deliver the latest promising treatments for cancer.

 

The Saints kick off their preseason campaign tonight against the St. Louis Rams. Head Coach Sean Payton says he likes the current NFL preseason schedule of four games. He says it give players the opportunity to rise to the occasion. Payton hasn’t said how much or if quarterback Drew Brees will play in tonight’s game. Brees has been out of pads for about a week because of an oblique injury. Backup quarterback Luke McCown is expected to see plenty of action tonight.

 

The LSU football team will go through its practice in pads this morning as the entire freshmen class will also be competing with the veterans for the first time. Coach Les Miles says based on yesterday’s practice, the defense is ahead of the offense. A question mark on defense this season is at defensive tackle as the Tigers must find two new starters.
